Is this with a USB CD drive?  Can you try with a later devel tree to see if it
works there?
Comment 2 Ed Friedman 2006-03-16 12:42:13 EST
Yes, this was with a USB DVD drive.  I experienced the problem with both a DVD
install and with a CD network install.  I used the 4.92 devel tree iso images. 
Where can I can anything more recent than that?

I should point out that FC4 installed on this laptop just fine.  Since I noticed
someone with a mini-mac complaining of something similar, the thought occurs to
me that perhaps this is all related to the fact to the CPU is core duo.
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2006-03-16 12:44:56 EST
USB cd drive stuff is fixed post-test3.  There's the devel tree or at this
point, you can wait until Monday
Comment 4 Ed Friedman 2006-03-16 12:58:32 EST
I don't see how this could be related to USB cd drive.  When I try the network
install, everything works fine until it gets to anaconda.  It gets anaconda over
the network, and from that point on the USB cd drive is irrelevant.
Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2006-03-16 13:18:33 EST
We still do device probing, see the USB cd drive and dereference a null pointer
due to a bug in kudzu.  
Comment 6 Ed Friedman 2006-03-20 17:10:53 EST
You can delete this bug report.  The released version of FC5 installed just fine.
(now if only I can figure out how to do a complete install with a single check
